(In our best Texan accent)
Are y’all lookin’ to get a taste of what it’s like to be a Texan? Immerse yourself in the cultural “cowboy way” when you dress, eat, and play like a Texan! We’ve got some ideas on how to live your best Texan life right here in Boerne.
Dress like a Texan –
You can’t dress like a Texan without some of the essentials: a cowboy hat, a pair of boots, and a belt buckle the size of the state we’re talkin’ about! All of those things and MORE can be found at stores like Wheeler's Western Outfitters and Boutique, Billy’s Western Wear, and Boerne Boot & Hide. Western-style jewelry, clothing, and leather products can be found at local shops like these! Pay them a visit, and you’ll be lookin’ like a Texan faster than a sneeze through a screen door.
Eat like a Texan –
Without getting y’er fill of Texas Bar-B-Q or Tex-Mex, a proper Texan experience has not taken place. So we recommend picking one cuisine for lunch and another for supper at one of our fabulous restaurant options. We can pretty much guarantee you’ll leave fuller than a tick!
Play like a Texan –
Once you’re dressed appropriately, and you’re fat and happy, it’s time to get down Texan style! That can mean anything from horseback riding among the rolling hills of Boerne, to rodeo-in’ at Tejas Rodeo on a Saturday night. Texas wineries and breweries are also growin’ in popularity. So there are MANY places to take a beer tour or taste some home-grown wine! If you are more of the live music type, try your hand at two-stepping at Kendalia Halle at their once-a-month dances, or have a look-see at some local Boerne talent at one of our nightlife venues. Better yet, make time for ALL of these tried and true Texan traditions with an extended stay!
